That was clear as he was pulled from rotation by head coach Tom Thibodeau and rumors swirled that he was preparing to pack his bags and find a new home in the NBA.
Reddish is young with a lot of potential, so everyone has been wondering where he may land.

It’s not clear which team is the current frontrunner to get Reddish but it is being reported that The Los Angeles Lakers, Miami Heat, and Milwaukee Bucks have “expressed interest” in trading for him.
Is the hunt for this small forward about to heat up?
Cam Carrying On
Reddish currently has a 2022-23 average of 8.4 points, 1.6 rebounds, and 1.0 on 44.9% from the field.
Those numbers might not blow your hair back but the teams in question see value in Reddish’s skills.
He might look appealing to the franchises for reasons beyond what he can do on the court.
Reddish will become a restricted free agent next summer, which means that any team could land him during this season without too hefty a price tag or too long a commitment.
There is also a chance that Reddish will fit in better on a new team, come to life, and prove to be a valuable asset.
He can bring his length and shooting skills to the Lakers, Heat, Bucks, or beyond.
Back when he was playing for the Hawks, Reddish was relied upon for 37.9% of his three-pointers.
If he can get back to those numbers, Reddish may be a smart, cheap acquisition for a number of teams.
